Mapping Twitter Data: Sherlock vs NYE

Perusing New Years Day on social media one couldn’t help but notice the large amount of tweets about the beginning of Season 3 of the BBC TV series ‘Sherlock’ ; nearly surpassing those of the New Year and reflections of the previous.

It seemed appropriate to use some of my new social media toolkit to collect this data. From 3:00pm until midnight the data was collected – the show being broadcast from 9:00pm until 10:00pm.

Below is the result showing the widespread hype throughout London during the day. Approximately 1800 geo-located tweets, which seems is only a very small subset of the tweets that actually appeared.

Nonetheless an interesting map to observe (mouseover green dot to view tweet text).
